Meet Emma Elephant!

She's always very helpful - she comes early to every party to help with the decorations! 

She'd make a great birthday gift for a friend - or a cute decoration to use at every party celebration in your family.

Pattern Details

You Get. . .

  • A digital pattern delivered by email. (If you're not sure what a PDF pattern is, you'll find more info here.) Print the pattern pages directly onto freezer paper or Sulky Sticky Fabri-solvy!
  • Full-sized pattern pieces for Emma, her dress, her hat, and her garland. No need to enlarge anything!
  • A 12-page pattern loaded with full-color step-by-step photos and very clear instructions. You’ll never feel lost or wonder if you’re doing things right.
  • Links to videos teaching you all the techniques you need to know to complete the project. You can totally make this!


    Emma is 8 inches tall (not counting her party hat) and she stand on her flat-bottomed feet with no props or other assistance. Cool!


    Easy! Much easier than it looks, and totally appropriate for beginners. It uses simple stitches and the pattern includes links to videos showing you how to do all of them. Emma the elephant softie pattern is really perfect for portable work – or handwork while you watch TV. 

    Materials Needed

    • scraps of wool felt for the hat and garland (Emma's hat is Grass Skirt. The garland is Fuchsia, Kelly Green, Peacock, Banana Cream, Lavender and Mac & Cheese)
    • embroidery thread to match the felt. I used DMC #156, 600, 151, 3846, 699, 907, 741, 333 and 726)

    Talk to Me

    If you're hiring out any part of the process, please get in touch and we'll work out a fair licensing agreement.

    For example, if you want to hire someone to die cut all the felt pieces for you, or want to manufacture kits for this design, those two scenarios would require a licensing agreement. Get in touch! I'm easy to talk to. :-)

    Not sure

    Years ago I subscribed to your club that mailed me a kit every 1 or maybe 2 months. I found the mailer with all the supplies and a small card with Emma Elephant’s picture. So I sent for the pattern ( wasn’t in the kit). The supplies however don’t look like those needed to make Emma. So I am unsure about what I am going to do. The felt in the kit is thick and kinda curly/fuzzy. Doesn’t look like Emma fabric.
